The September 26, 2019 Board of Park Commissioners meeting is canceled for the Board to convene a retreat to discuss Board business at the Japanese Garden from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Board will hold their next regular Park Board meeting on October 10.
The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners is a nine-member citizen board created by the City Charter. Four members are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council; four members are appointed by the City Council; and one member is a young adult appointed by the YMCA Get Engaged program.
The Board generally meets twice a month, normally on the second and fourth Thursday, to advise the Parks and Recreation Superintendent, the Mayor, and the City Council on parks and recreation matters.
